    Where can I find a watch that looks like this and does anyone know about this company?

    I came across a very beautiful watch that I would love to buy, but it's from a company I have never heard of before, and I don't know what their reputation is. So my questions are: (1) Has anyone heard of, or bought a watch from Balmar & Kalt? (2) Where can I buy a watch like this if not from Balmar & Kalt? In other words, if they are not reliable, where does one find a watch like this one? Balmar & Kalt calls it a Marine Series. I have looked everywhere without success. Thank you.

    Looks like another Chinese knockoff, heavy on the Blue lipstick.

    Price?

    That looks like a knock-off (or homage depending on your view) of the Archimede Klassik Chronograph.

    Easy. For that look from reputable company with known brand, IWC Portuguese chronograph is a good place to look

    I stand corrected. You nailed it.

    And that cheap knockoff brand did what IWC apparently couldn't -- not chop off 6 and 12.

    Donato777 ask about that watch on the Chinese Mechanical Watch forum here on WUS.

    Btw op, if you are fine w knockoffs I'd steer clear of Balmar and Kalt. Same Holuns and Megir watches can be had on Ali express or Amazon at a fraction of the price - $20 or so.
    And judge likely quality from that as well...

    The IWC may be closer but check out the Junghans Chronoscope too for a similar look.

    Try the IWC Portuguese.
